As 2016 ticks away to complete our 61st season in Boulder, we would like to thank our wonderful customers for another great year.
We made some very tough decisions in 2016. As of January 1st, 2017, we will transition away from the True Value co-op after 30 years of partnership to join the Ace Hardware co-op. This does not mean we are "selling out" or surrendering our independence. Much like True Value, Ace's co-op makes products and services available to smaller local businesses like ours so that we can compete with big box and online retailers. We are a customer-oriented business that is part of a co-op who supports customer-oriented family businesses. Right now, we buy from over 1500 vendors. After this switch, we will still buy from over 1500 vendors. If we didn't do that, then we wouldn't be McGuckin Hardware.
Our new Ace Hardware co-op membership grants us the opportunity to be more efficient in customer service excellence, and makes more products available to our customers, when they need it. We are excited to bring in iconic brands like Craftsman, Stihl, Benjamin Moore and Yeti. By using some of Ace's models, we'll maintain the customer service and products you expect, at the fairest prices possible.
We anticipate 2017 to be another great year, and our Spring Tent Sale should be the biggest one yet! Thank you to all our loyal customers, and thank you for shopping local!
Happy holidays to you and yours from all of us here at McGuckin Hardware.
Barry Hight, President
